Main Equipment Used

Steps In Making

  1. Roughly chop the tomatoes.
  2. Add them in a pressure cooker along with 1 cup of water. Now pressure cook till 3 whistles and let them cool down completely.
  3. Puree them into a fine pulp with the help of a mixer grinder or a hand blender.
  4. Run the pulp through a sieve to avoid any seeds and unwanted fiber.
  5. Let the pulp simmer on medium heat while stirring it occasionally for 8-10 minutes. It will reduce in size.
  6. Now add the sugar, red chili powder, salt and mix well.
  7. Let it simmer on low-medium flame till it thickens.
  8. To test if its done, take some sauce on a plate and tilt the plate a little, if there is water then cook for some more time. Do not over cook the ketchup, as it will thicken once it cools down.
  9. Cool down completely. Sore in a clean and dry bottle or container for upto 6 months in the refrigerator.
